I don’t think you can make this argument if you look at the history of this country prior to FDR’s presidency, when the country was marred by financial scams, bank runs, child labor, lethal working conditions, murderous union busting, cut throat competition by monopolies, poor public health facilities and regulations, no organized disaster relief, segregation, unfettered hate crimes, institutionalized racism, inequality of women, etc. etc. etc.
